Verdict

The odds-on Terrierman made hard work of beating MERCIAN KNIGHT at Southwell last month and Amy Murphy’s unexposed runner may well take his revenge here on 7lb better terms. Bumper winner Gonn Away should enjoy the step up in trip and makes more appeal than winning pointer Another Tuco and Ballyfarsoon, who has had 53 career starts but has never raced over this sort of trip.
